Sold by Dr. W. E. Brown & Co.
When people read THE TIMES this
week they will remark that it is not as
newsy or as editorially full as usual;
we have a good excuse to offer. Noth
ing doing to make news and hot weath
er induces laziness.
Dear Gus:-I have solved the moth
er-in-law problem; just give her regur
larly Hollister's Rocky Mountain Tea.
it will make her healthy, happy and
docile as a lamb. 25c, Tea or Tablets

The editor of THE TIMEs spent a few
days of last week at the Isle of Palms
whiere he enjoyed the sea breezes and
surf bathing, the guests and service at
the seashore hotel. The Isle of Palms
is an ideal place for recreation.
If you are troubled with dizzy spells,
headache, indigestion, constipation,
Hollister's Rocky Mountain Tea will
make you well and keep you well. If
it fails, get your money back. That's
fair- 35c at Dr. W. E. Brown & Co.'s.
With an outlook of good prices for cot
ton thisseason,and fall and winter goods
bought before high priced cotton set
in, we see no reason why Manning
should be afraid of any point in this
part of the State so far as business is
concerned. Goods can and will be sold
here as cheap as elsewhere, and if our
merchants are alive to their own inter
ests they will see to-it that the cotton
market will be an inducement for the
farmers to bring the staple here.
There is in prospect a new rural free
delivery route in this county to cover
a very important portion of the Fork
section. The proposed route is to go
from Manning to E. R. Plowden's,
across Brewington, back to Manning
-on the Kingstree road. Such a route
would be a great convenience to a large
number of people who are badly cut off
from mail facilities. At present the
nearest postoffice to Mr. E. R. Plowden
is Manning, a distance of nine miles.
We hope the parties interested will
press this matter so as to get the route
established as early as possible.
The notice of a picnic rally at Cole's
Mill on the 25th, instant, is published
elsewhere, and we expect this affair
to be well attended. The people of
Salem know how to make a picnic a
success. We notice among the speak
ers invited is the name of Hon. John
L. McLaurin. We are satisfied it will
be impossible for that gentleman to be
present, because he went to Washing
ton on the association's business, from
there he goes to New York and then
he, with the Hon. J. Sharp Williams,
the Democratic leader in Congress,
will tour Alabama in the interests of
the cotton association. Mrn McLaurin
will not get back from Alabama in
time for the Salem rally, but if any or
all of the other speakers invited attend
the pgcefthatsection will certainly
-einstructed and entertained.
We hope the affair will be a big success.
Temember the date. August 23.
That portion of Manning known ac
"Weinberg Town" is to be surveyed
and cut up into streets and building
lots. This Is a move in the right direc.
tion, and if our town authorities will
treat Mr. Weinberg as liberally as
they have other property owners there
would be a considerable development
of the town's progress by opening up a
large number of building lots that are
now closed for lack of streets. No town
can develop unless obstacles to its
growth are removed. and one of the
greatest obstacles to the prosperity of
a town is to have no inducements to
offer people desiring to move into it.
As we are situated today there are very
few available building lots, and the
few here are beyond the reach of men
of ordinary means, but if there were
a large number of lots upon the market
the price would be rated accordingly,
and rapid development would set in.
A little forethought may save you no
end of trouble. Anyone who makes it
a rule to keep Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy at
hand knows this to be a fact. For sale

Cotton Warehouse Movement.
The books of subscription for the
Manning Cotton Warehouse have been
opened, and the stock is being sub
scribed to, but we regret to say that
there are some -interested, or rather
who should be, that will not subscribe
unless they can dictate the location.
The majority of the subscribers, how
ever, do not care where the warehouse
is situate, just so it is convenient to the
railroad, but at the sametime they do
not wish to be the victims of extortion
when it comes to the price of a lot. The
most suitable lot for a cotton ware
house, in our opinion, is the Naval
Store site, but the Drice asked is pro
hibitive, and should not be considered,
then there are lots bordering on the
railroad right-of-way which belong
to W. A. Barfield, W. S. Harvin and
the estate of Mrs. Edith Hall, any of
which will serve the purpose if the
owners thereof do not resort to extor
tion. The cotton warehouse, in our
opinion, will never pay its stockholders
a direct profit. Those who take stock
with the expectation of realizing divi
dends will be disappointed. It is en
tirely an enterprise to help our local
market by affording facilities to our
farmers to bring their cotton here, and
by inducing the cotton. here. the busi
ness of the town is helped, and indirect
ly brings profit to every person in the
We sincerely hope that all of the
stock will be taken, that a suitable lot
will be secured, and work on the build
ing be begun at once.
Mr. W. E. Jenkinson has this matter
in hand and it is his purpose to have
a large number of subscribers scattered
all over the country so that no one man
shall retain a controlling interest. We
hope the farmers will take hold of this
project so that they can have a voice
in its management. Anybody can sub
scribe to the stock, and the more sub
scribers the smaller number of shares
each individual will have to take.
How to Avoid Pneumonia.
We have never heard of a single in
stance of a cold resulting in pneumonia
or other lung trouble when Foley's
Honey and Tar has been taken. It not
only stops the cough, but heales and
strengthens the lungs. Ask for Foley's
Honey and Tar and refuse any substi
tute offered. Dr. C. J. Bishop of Ag
new, Mich., writes: "I have used
Foley's Honey and Tar in three very
severe cases of pneumonia with good
results in every case." .The R. B. Lor

A Salem Rally.
Upon representations made to me
by Dr. I. M. Woods of Sardinia, that it
is the desire of the people of the Salem
section to have a cotton growers' rally,
convenient to them, I take pleasure in
announcing there will be a basket pic
nic under the auspices of the Cotton
Growers' Association at Cole's Mill,
Friday, August 2.5th, at which the
following distinguished gentlemen are
invited to deliver addresses on matters
pertaining to the association: Presi

Why We Have One Sided Men.
Faculties must be exercised or they
will not grow. Nature is too good an
economist to allow us to keep any
faculty or functiop which we do not
employ. We can have just what we
use and that will constantly increase.
Everything else will be gradually tak
en away from us. Man becomes strong
and powerful and broad just In pro
portion to the extent and healthfulness
of the aeuvity of his faculties, and It
must not be one sided, not an exercise
of one or two faculties or one set of
faculties, or the man will topple over.
Balance in life comes from the health
ful exercise of all the faculties. One
reason why we have so many one sid
ed men In this country Is because
they pursue one Idea, exercise one
side of their nature, and of course
they cannot retain their balance. This
Is one of the curses of specialties.
They are a good thing for the race,
but death to the Individual who pur
sues his specialty at the expense of
the development of the all around
man.-O. S. Marden in Success Maga

I wish to say a word in praise of Dr.
King's Improved Chill and Fever
Tonic. I had chills for one year con
tinually, and tried all the chill tonics I
could get and also doctor's prescrip
tions, but all failed to cure. Part of
one bottle entirely cured me, and have
not had chills since. 1 recommend only
King's. T. F. Howard. Sold by Dr. W.

Earning Their "Dot."
The manager of a large dressmaking
establishment In New York says: "I
suppose that the most un-American Im
migrants we get in this country are
not the Chinese or the Poles or the
Hungarians, but the Parisian seam
stresses, milliners and lingerie work
ers. These women come here to save
the price of a 'dot' out of our high
American wages. It takes from two
to five years to do that. In all that
time they never mix with Americans,
never visit a theater, never make the
frst attempt to learn the language.
Some of them go to the French church
on Sundays; otherwise they never
leave their rooms except to shop. This
prenuptial period in New York is just
a time dropped out of their lives. They
talk of nothing day after day but what
they'll do when they get back to Paris
and begin to live again."

Flavors Are For.
Flavoring extracts are added to food
in order to make the food more appe
tizing. Appetizing food is apt to digest
better than the other sort, and hence
the right sort of a flavor adds nutritive
value. Cheap and artificial flavors al
ways lack the delicate, appetizing qual
ity of the genuine kind and in addition,
are apt to be directly harmful. Such
flavors are more commonly sold than
. you think. It is probable that nine
A tenths of the vanilla is either wholly or
partly artificial. We make a line of
pure flavoring extracts from selected
material for those people who appreci
ate the best. While the first cost of
these may be a trifle higher than that
of fraud flavors, they are really cheaper
in the end, because they go farther and
they do good instead of harm.
